951 Why Does Man Always Make Demands of God?

Verse 1

Regardless of what they face or deal with,

people always protect their interests.

They always look out for their own flesh,

and look for excuses that serve them.

They are all without the slightest truth,

doing things to justify their own flesh.

They only think of their own prospects.

All claim God’s grace to get what they can.


Pre-chorus 1

In praying, communing, and preaching,

in what they pursue, their thoughts, wishes,

they make demands of God and claim things.

It’s human nature that causes this.


Chorus

Why does man make many demands of God?

This proves that they’re naturally greedy

and don’t possess any sense before God.

Yes, they don’t have any sense before God.


Verse 2

That people make many demands of God

proves they don’t have the sense man should have.

They all ask for things for their own sakes,

or look for excuses for their own sakes.

They have no sense in what they do,

which is full proof of Satan’s logic,

which says that “Everyone’s for himself,

and the devil takes the hindmost.”


Pre-chorus 2

What’s proved by man’s excessive demands?

It proves how corrupt Satan’s made them,

which means that, in their belief in God,

people don’t treat Him as God at all.


Chorus

Why does man make many demands of God?

This proves that they’re naturally greedy

and don’t possess any sense before God.

Yes, they don’t have any sense before God.


Bridge

Externally, you do follow God,

yet in your attitude towards Him,

and in your views and many matters,

you don’t treat Him like the Creator.


Chorus

Why does man make many demands of God?

This proves that they’re naturally greedy

and don’t possess any sense before God.

Yes, they don’t have any sense before God, before God.
